  • ASTR 106: The Solar System Laboratory

    A laboratory experience to complement the material covered in ASTR 105. Lab activities will include analyzing and interpreting data on Kepler’s Laws, optics, and planetary systems.

  • ASTR 281: Principles of Astronomy

    In this course students will explore physics principles pertaining to the sky and the astronomical objects observed in it. Possible topics studied include stellar evolution, stellar interiors and atmospheres, galactic dynamics, galaxy evolution, as well as the basic cosmology principles.

  • ASTR 282: Observational Astronomy

    This course will cover the basics of observing the night sky. Topics will include the motions of astronomical objects, instruments and techniques used to study them. Students will learn the constellations and use telescopes to view celestial bodies. The course will include outdoor night observation sessions outside of class hours.

  • PHYS 226: Optics & Modern Physics Lab

    Devoted to the understanding of experiments in Optics, Atomic Physics, and Nuclear Physics. Typical experiments would cover composite lens systems, interference effects, e/m, emission spectra, and radioactive decay.

  • PHYS 341: Seminar in Physics

    Presentations are made by students enrolled, faculty members, and invited guests. Each student is expected to attend each scheduled meeting and to make at least one oral presentation on a topic approved by the instructor. Students must also write critiques of presentations.
